try setting a new wallpaper through your internet browser or other means such as right clicking a photo.

check if other control panel options are freezing. if so I advise a thorough virus and malware scan. perhaps run windows through a repair using the CD if problem. persist.

Right click on a empty spot on your desktop go to properties. You will be able to choose what to keep and what to get rid of.

Does sound like something fishy going on
We generally recommend MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) and MBAM (Malwarebytes Anti-Malware) for system scans
Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO removes malware including viruses, spyware, worms and trojans, plus it protects your computer
If this doesnt do it and you still suspect issues you can try windows defender offline scan

Do you have a restore point created prior to the problem? If so, give it a try.
